LDS extends condolences to families of tragic incidents

Seychelles has marked two weeks of tragic incidents which have seen the deaths of a number of our citizens. Their deaths have touched a large number of people personally but the whole nation joins in mourning the victims of these tragedies.

LDS extends its condolences and sympathy to all the families, relatives and friends who have borne these calamities. 

We remember the two young children, Alizee Payet and Liam Leon who lost their lives in the boat accident when returning to Praslin from La Digue after the August 15th celebrations.

Another tragedy that has touched Praslin deeply is the death of Captain Pierre Grandcourt (pictured), a well-respected professional. He lost his life while on a mission to assist a vessel in distress. Captain Grandcourt has always been devoted in service to his country, including in politics. He was part of the leadership of the opposition party SNP and has been a candidate for English River in the National Assembly elections.

In the incident involving a vessel operated by IDC on Coetivy, four men are believed dead although their bodies have not been found so far. They are three Seychellois, Darren Morel, Nigel Fanchette and Norcy Serret and also one Sri Lankan national, AV Prematilka. 

Apart from these accidents, families are also mourning the deaths of others from different incidents in recent days which have been reported as a motor cycle accident, a suicide, an alleged drug overdose, a victim of violence in prison and one in yet unknown circumstances. 

These deaths in our small country are a burden on our hearts and minds and we join together in solidarity to share the pain.

We pray that they all the departed rest in peace and that the families find courage to face the pain of losing their loved ones.
